characterization of campylobacter isolates recovered from clinically healthy pigs and from sporadic cases of campylobacteriosis in humans.campylobacter spp. were recovered from 660 (77.6%) of 850 swine cecal contents at the abattoir and from 24 (8.6%) of 278 specimens from sporadic cases of human diarrhea during the same period in the same geographical area. campylobacter coli represented 95.7% of campylobacter isolates recovered from pigs and 8.3% of those isolated from humans. genetic profiles were determined by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (pfge) using kpni enzyme to characterize the isolates in combination with phenotypic ...200414968951
a national investigation of the prevalence and diversity of thermophilic campylobacter species in agricultural watersheds in canada.the occurrence and diversity of thermophilic campylobacter species (c. jejuni, coli, and lari) were studied in water samples from four river basins located across canada. these basins located in quebec (bras d'henri), alberta (oldman), ontario (south nation), and british columbia (sumas) represented some of the most intensive farming areas in canada for hog, beef cattle, dairy cattle, and poultry, respectively. this study analyzed 769 water samples collected from 23 monitoring sites with agricul ...201424930011
campylobacter coli outbreak in men who have sex with men, quebec, canada, 2010-2011.during september 2010-november 2011, a cluster of erythromycin-susceptible, tetracycline- and ciprofloxacin-resistant campylobacter coli pulsovar 1 infections was documented, involving 10 case-patients, in montreal, quebec, canada. the findings suggested sexual transmission of an enteric infection among men who have sex with men.201323647786
microbiological quality of blue mussels (mytilus edulis) in nunavik, quebec: a pilot study.this pilot study was aimed at documenting the presence of fecal indicators and enteric pathogens in blue mussels (mytilus edulis) from 6 communities in nunavik, quebec. one to four 2 kg samples of mussels were collected at low tide in each community. samples were investigated by enumeration methods for the fecal indicators enterococci, escherichia coli, f-specific coliphages, clostridium perfringens, and by molecular identification for the pathogens norovirus, salmonella spp., campylobacter jeju ...201021076488
antimicrobial susceptibility of campylobacter jejuni and campylobacter coli isolates obtained in montreal, quebec, canada, from 2002 to 2013.from 2002 to 2013 in montreal, quebec, canada, 38 campylobacter coli isolates were more frequently erythromycin, tetracycline, and ciprofloxacin resistant than 440 campylobacter jejuni subsp. jejuni isolates (18.4% versus 1.8%; p = 0.00005), of which the 148 isolates acquired abroad were more frequently erythromycin, tetracycline, and ciprofloxacin resistant than the 292 isolates acquired locally (5.4% versus 0%; p = 0.0001).201424759726
